Charles S  Master certified VW tech sharing the behind the scenes world of fixing cars. Also building MK3 GTI VR6 turbo, and rehabbing a #mk4 #R32. @garyvee fan

Really had the itch for some HPD. This was last year driving a Golf on a Frozen lake in the arctic circle with @nokiantyresna Too bad I can’t get the R32 up there. 😂🥶😂💙

Wow. This is the coolest thing ever! Y’all..... I don’t even know what to say other than thank you. 🙏 also is someone cutting onions?

Got the transmission bolted up. Now we wait for the sealant to set, the torque it down. Feels good to make some dang progress on this old girl.

What are y’all wrenching on today? I’m cleaning up the last few parts before breaking out the powder coating gear. @zealous_mfg polished one of them, I’m gonna powder coat the other.

This is one of the first things I ever built for a car. Anyone want to guess what it is? Bonus points if you know the car it was for. 😎 #homedepotmotorsports

Here is a quick tip on installing snap rings. Got the output shaft gear stack together today. New synchros, and needle bearings and a 1/2 hub(thanks to @deutscheauto) .

Working on the transmission for the Gti today. FINALLY!!! I might even get it back together. Well mostly. Got a few parts to throw some powder coat on.

Tech tip of the day... Don’t leave your pup in the car by himself. 😳😳😢

Great advice. Also the dude on the top right. 😂😂😂

Got the tag for the Touareg. I can’t help but think it’s a swear. Hahah or maybe an acronym 🤷‍♂️

While I was at #naias my new bolts for the GTI transmission came. This is a heck of an Upgrayedd from the factory ones. Thanks @zealous_mfg for the freshy fresh hardware. 🥶
